Sharron Angle (Republican) Takes on Senate Majority Leader Reid (Democrat) for Nevada Senate

The polling the last month has showed this Nevada Senate race to be an extremely close race and in most cases Angle and Reid have been tied. For the Majority Leader Reid not to be polling 50% says a lot about the lack of faith people in Nevada have in him. They sent him to DC to represent Nevada interests not be a lapdog to the ultra liberal Obama and Pelosi. Nevada is not a liberal state and the people of Nevada deserve better than the Harry Reid they have seen for two years push the far left agenda of Obama.

We always figured that Harry Reid was soft on illegals and sure enough it turns out to be true. Another issue that the people of Nevada disagree with Reid about. What issue do most people from Nevada agree with Harry Reid? We haven't found one yet as he has gone so far left since he took over the Senate. Most people of Nevada are probably asking themselves who is this Harry Reid?

When you look at Sharron Angle's background, you realize you have a candidate who will fight for the rights of the citizens of Nevada in DC not be a lapdog for the liberal Obama and Pelosi like Harry Reid. She is a fighter and has been a longtime activist of the Republican party of NV which the media seems to want to ignore. She is not some first time candidate who doesn't have a background in politics but a seasoned veteran of the Nevada political scene.

Sharron was first elected in 1992 to the Nye County School Board of Trustees. The family moved back to Reno in 1995 and in 1998 she was elected to the Nevada State Assembly where she faithfully served until 2006 fighting for smaller government, lower taxes, and a better Nevada for future generations. She is proud of her past chairwomanship of We the People Nevada PAC that sponsored the Property Tax Restraint Initiative.

A true protector of the Nevada Constitution, Sharron has fought and won judicial battles to protect Nevadan's constitutional rights. In 2003 while serving as the Minority Whip in the Nevada State Assembly, Sharron challenged the Governor's proposed massive $800 million tax hike. Supported by Nevada's constitutional requirement that all tax increases be approved by a two-thirds super majority, battle lines were drawn between the Republicans in the Assembly and the Governor. Sharron and fourteen other courageous Republicans consistently voted against the tax measure through the end of the regular session of the legislature and on through two special sessions. The Governor then sued the legislature in Angle v Guinn to force a decision by the Nevada Supreme Court. The Court over-ruled the two-thirds requirement which meant the taxes were to be imposed through a simple majority rather than by two-thirds vote. Using her own funds, Sharron hired Dr. John Eastman of the Claremont Institute to defend the Nevada's Constitution against this injury. Angle and Eastman took this case to Federal District Court in Nevada, which ended up referring the case to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, then finally to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The attention from Angle v Guinn resulted in the members of the Nevada Supreme Court which made that ruling either retired or were replaced through election defeat. Subsequently the new Court reversed the decision in 2007 reinstating the two-thirds requirement in the Constitution. In recognition of her fight to protect the Constitution, Sharron received the prestigious Claremont Institute Ronald Reagan Freedom Medallion for Courageous Client in 2004.

Though this was a personally costly case for Sharron to defend, this is precisely what she believes the founding fathers meant when they said we must "pledge our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor" to protect our freedom and liberty.

In addition to her proud service in the Nevada legislature, Sharron has been an active member of the Republican Party for many years. She currently serves on the Nevada State Central Committee and has been the chairman of the Washoe County GOP precinct organization effort.

Sharron Angle is also a proud member of the Gun Owners of America, National Right to Life Committee, Concerned Women for America, Nevada Republican Assembly, Washoe County Republican Party, and Fellowship Community Church.

Would be great to beat the Majority Leader Reid. Grassroots did it with Tom Daschle and the same thing can happen with Sharron Angle. If the people of Nevada want someone who will be a Senator from Nevada who will represent their interest, then there is only one choice -- Sharron Angle.
